That's funny. My mail reader on the Amiga was an Arexx script driving
the Thinker hypertext engine. It slurped up email, and created links
for the Reply-To and References headers. Unfortunately, it used the
message id as the label on the message, so then-current versions of
Outlook Express broke the labelling.
